Creating a sense of flow in a cramped condo living room can be tricky, but with these 7 space-saving, modern ideas, you’ll have plenty of room for entertaining without crowding the space. Looks inspired by nature, such as stained wood and glass, pair well with a more industrial style, with heavy metal furniture frames and metal lamps. When decorating your condo, finding pieces that combine form, function, and storage is the key.
1. Nesting Side Tables
Nesting side tables can expand to give you more space in a small conversation nook. Pull the tables out for extra space for food and drinks, then nest them back again after your company leaves.
2. Small Cubes
Add small cube seating underneath a side table for extra seating options. Make sure to measure the cube seating and your table for a perfect fit. You can also purchase cube seating with a lift-off lid for additional storage inside the cubes.
3. Glass Tables
Glass-topped tables can open up the space, allowing light to reflect through. A large glass-topped coffee table gives you plenty of surface space without making a smaller room feel overcrowded.
4. Buffet Side Table
A buffet-style side table with cabinets and drawers provides extra storage without filling up the room. Use a cabinet as both a side table and storage for games, extra blankets, or anything else you need while still giving the space a clean, uncluttered appearance.
5. Comfortable Office Chair
This comfortable, mid-century modern office-style chair is perfect for a space that’s a dual purpose of work-from-home and entertaining. It’s large enough to sit comfortably during the workday but stylish enough to complement an overall modern design
6. Desk + Chair
Combine the industrial appeal of metal furniture with natural stained wood. This writing desk and chair set‘s straight lines and dark metal are softened by the stained natural wood and desktop accessories inspired by the outdoors. The solid gold lamp is an accent piece that adds a flair to the overall look.
7. Metal Lamps
Metal lamps and accessories are functional and impressive as statement pieces. Plus, the reflective metal adds more light to a room than other types of light finishes. Opt for a large, geometric table lamp or free-standing lamp to add interest to your living room design.
